well... the bike starts, but doesn't run great, has a light occasionally and is showing low oil pressure. (maybe?! he didn't explain)
i don't think that the first step here is to overhaul the fuel system.
OP, give the bike a good once over. carefully take off the plastics, then make sure the battery terminals are tight, that all the plugs in the harness you can find are well secured and don't show any corrosion. that any grounds you can find on the bike are well connected and not corroded.
check the oil level (change the oil if you are unsure when it was last changed), drain the fuel tank and refill with fresh if you don't know last time it was filled.
once you have done all this, try to start it. you may need to hold the throttle open a TINY BIT to get the engine to catch, then hold it barely open (engine speed ~2000rpm) until the bike warms up. once it's warm-ish (>100f), gently let the throttle go. if the bike stalls you need to adjust the idle and should look into that adjustment.
it could just be partially fouled plugs that need to get running.
start as simple as possible. these bikes are incredibly robust, and many like to take issues they have personally had and apply them to all problems. redrider i'm not saying it can't be fuel, but just because you had the issue doesn't mean a simple non-start is the same issue you had.
get through the easy stuff and report back OP
